YDS Endowed Funds

Thank you for your interest in supporting one of our many endowed funds at YDS. 

The links below will take you to websites to make a direct donation to the fund of your choice. This is a list of our most current active fundraising efforts. If your fund of interest is not listed here, you may make a donation through the Divinity School’s main giving page, noting your specific scholarship fund as an “Other” designation. Follow the link and instructions at the bottom of this page.

We encourage all donors to register with the University’s giving site by using the Login button at the top of the donation pages. An account allows you to see your open pledges and a summary of past contributions, and expedites the online giving process. If you are a Yale alumna/alumnus, an account also gives you access to the online alumni directory. Registering is optional. You can still make a gift without logging in.
